Lee Tsuen Seng - two time NZ Open Champion !!
LTS take the title with game two, 21-17
Aiyaaa, the Taiwanese MD pair are leading 11-9 over Edo-Lingga in game 1...
Ouch, Taiwanese pair won game 1 22-20 and now leading 8-1 in game 2...
The Taiwanese pair is on fire, leading 11-2 in 2nd game after winning the 1st 22-20.
Chen HL, Harry Potter from Taiwan is awesome atm...
Argh... Edo-Lingga lost... Looking at the way the match went, I don't think Edo-Lingga deserve to win yet...
Well, at least Edo-Lingga and Wifqi-Alfiat got decent Ranking Points out of this NZ Open event...
Sigh! No title for INA as the last hope Fernando Kurniawan/Lingga Lie lost to TPE MD Chen Hung Ling/Lin Yu Lang, 22-20 ; 21-10.
Congratz to the winners :
MS -- Lee Tsuen Seng (MAS)
WS -- Zhou Mi (HKG)
MD -- Chen Hung Ling/Lin Yu Lang (TPE)
WD -- Chien Yu Chin/Chou Chia Chi (TPE)
XD -- Chen Hung Ling/Chou Chia Chi (TPE)

so 3 titles from taipei, 1 for hkg and mas
chen hong ling is the new asia harry potter and the male version of gao ling
after he begs two title herehehe
Quick word with Zhou Mi
Had a quick word with Zhou Mi..quick for 2 reasons..she had other media commitments to attend to including taking pics and signing autographs for fans, and the other reason for it being quick..."lost in translation" issue. Unfortunately, I can't speak Mandarin very well so had to get my friend to help translate!
Ok, asked her 2 questions. First, does she think she'll be the first Final Super Series Women's Champion? A bit strange but she said these days, she doesn't enter tournaments concentrating to win but more for the enjoyment of the sport really.
2nd Question: Why is she not playing for China and instead play for Hong Kong? It wasn't her who had the choice of who to play for but China didn't want her anymore because they wanted to make place for back up players. But she still loved the sport so much and playing for Hong Kong gave her the opportunity to keep playing the game she loves so much and so she went there.
I was going to ask what about Zhang Ning but got interrupted by her fans who wanted photos with her etc so I let that one go.
Had a brief chat with Sairul just before his game with Tsun Seng. Asked if he was nervous and whether he had heard about the Star newspaper saying that this is his best chance to win his first tournament for the year? He said not at all and he was just going to try his best to win. Also asked if all KLRC players (from different countries) all travel together since they're all part of KLRC, he said no, players still travel with their own countrymen to tournaments. It did seem like a "big happy family" affair though as all KLRC people from different countries seem to know each other well, shared a joke or two etc.
It was a good tournament...might put up some photos!
The real WS champion was...<drumroll>
Here are some photos from the evening..They are from top to bottom:
1. Yours truly;
2. "Harry Potter" of Chinese Taipei;
3. Men finalists; and
4. Women finalists.
I am the real winner!!!
Womens Singles, haha nice one .
Too bad, Edo/Lingga lost in the Final to the TPE pair. Back to training and hopefully they can reach at least QF in the Yonex-Sunrise Vietnam Open GP to be held after the Hong Kong SS.
Kurniawan and Lingga lost their energetic spirit once the TPE pair started to get louder than them..
I think the 'fault receiver' at game point really unsettled the Indonesian pair. They just didn't look anywhere near as determined in the second game; not that the Taiwanese pair gave them any chance to do that.
It's always nice to put a face to a name Adelina, I'm the guy with the tripod and handicam sitting 3 seats away to your left.
